Son of a Sailor
Took my son skiing for the first time when he was five. After a few runs in a ski harness he was off and wanted poles. Seemed okay right off with them and he's never looked back. So much easier to teach them when young and there is no fear.Her public school has a 1130-3 instruction every thursday, comes with the season pass they all get until 7th grade. She has a good group of friends she skiis with too. they all have poles and are a bit older.
I spent much of my life skiing exactly when and where I wanted. Only interested in doing it with the family now.
